Just bought my copy, and even though I haven't delved much into the soft yet, the first little thing that comes across, is the lack of DWG/DXF support.

Those file formats are still industry standard within CNC manufacturing, and also for architecture it could come in handy.

 

Bests,

DWG and DXF are not filters we intend on adding to Designer. Affinity Designer is targeted at UI designers and Illustrators. CNC, CAD,  Flowcharts and other diagraming may be covered in a future product but not Designer.

Ok, thank you for the answer.

Making illustrations based on CAD drawings from a client, is something we do quite often too. 

Just had an issue now, where I want to make an illustration from a plan drawing in Rhinoceros. Exporting to AI format from Rhino, I am not able to import anything in AD - just an empty canvas.

If Rhino doesn't include a PDF or Postscript stream in their AI export then Affinity will not be able to import it.

 

If you post an example export then we could have a look.

Yep - solved it by going through Moi3d - better pdf export :) Problem is, few CAD programs handles pdf, svg or eps very well, if at all...
